Micko,

relaxing is not very efficient if you keep posting on the forum ....

Take a beer, sit on the veranda, view a movie, anything but linux....

Manual frugal install of B5 on Dell Inspiron 1100. Booted to desktop, no issues
What worked OTB:
    Brookdale mod
    Flynclient mod (synaptics touchpad here)
    Sound
    Volume setter icon in tray
    Frisbee
    Mplayer with mp4 file
    Shutdown highlighting

What didn't:
    time setter, seem to GMT-5 regardless of choice - tried a selection;however,
    /etc/localtime points to the selcted zone, but the arithmetic does't happen
    occasional black screen on reboot, especially, it seems, when hot...
    another brooky problem on all??? newer kernels, xorgs, ... not to worry

Liked rockstar more than I expected! ... I'm no longer close to being young

Enjoy the time off,start soon Very Happy

The shutdown problem was that only affecting full installs?

Is B5 then better than B4 or should one go back to B3 or B2 or what.

Sorry I fail to follow all the things happening.

The wireless driver (RT2800) included in B5 does support the RT3090 chip in the eee PC, but cannot connect. Error message, same as in Wary 5199.
Error message "non WPA".

Hi Mick

Thought it was time to try slacko B5 on my ancient IBM Thinkpad laptop.

Good news is - it works fine except I had problems getting the Neomagic driver to work. If I did probe then I got the vesa driver. So I specifically chose the Neomagic driver. There are no diagnostics to report as xwin just never produced a display - it just sat for a bit and then went to command prompt #

As I had been able to boot correctly to the desktop on Exprimo I decided to copy the xorg.conf file across from Exprimo and this then worked fine in slacko. I can pm you the xorg.conf file if that is useful.

Cheers
peebee

PostPosted: Tue 27 Sep 2011, 14:53    Post_subject: Suspend menu item?  

Hi Mick

A small request / suggestion....

As slacko b5 contains /etc/acpi/actions/suspend.sh which works great (as an alternative to closing the laptop lid)....

Would it be possible to add a "Suspend" entry into the Shutdown menu?

Thanks
peebee

Sub_title: pets2sfs
 

Hi Mick,

I've tried to use your pets2sfs in slacko B5. I placed the pets that I wanted to convert in a directory called pets and executed
Code:
pets2sfs pets-1
The result was a pets-1.sfs file that is empty. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jim

PostPosted: Tue 27 Sep 2011, 15:52    Post_subject: Slacko B5 systems report  

Live media use of SLACKO. System overall responsiveness very good.

Observation:
On boot (pfix-ram) system stops to request "Probe-Config-Vesa".
Question
Is there an option to bypass this to allow FirstRUN to handle this like it used to?

Observation
After Video selections, system proceeds to desktop. Once at desktop, there is a very long wait before FirstRUN (Personalize Settings) pops to desktop to allow necessary system tailoring.
Question
If a long wait is to occur normally, should there be a "Please Stand-by" message?

Observation
Did not see following reports in Menu (s)
Question
Should Report-Video-GLX and Sys-Info be in the Menu for reporting system setup and behavior?

A system report is attached for observation.


Hope this helps

Hi 01micko & All,

After checking that I had not installed into Beta4 any pets effected by Beta5's installation, did a simple upgrade to Beta5, to wit: while in Lupu deleted Beta4's boot files and unpacked Beta5's boot files into Slacko directory, preserving my SaveFile. Rebooted into Slacko Beta5. All was well except minor inconvenience of again having to remove unwanted desktop icons.
I do like the GTK rockstar theme.
01micko -- you'll have to stop doing such a great job or we users will grow to expect it and be disappointed on rare occasions.
Not exactly a criticism, just a source of temporary confusion I hadn't mentioned. In Beta4 (continued in Beta5) you changed the icon used by "show desktop" on the tray. At first I didn't realize what was there, thinking I now had 3 virtual desktops and no "show desktop" on the tray. When I figured it out, I tried to change the icon, but it wouldn't accept a "png" file --'though I could use a png file when adding "Snapshot" to the tray. Perhaps I did something wrong?

I've attached my wallpaper for others who prefer natural to abstract. Puppy is my only concession to the canine world as I am a "cat person," ergo "Slacker Cat." Don't know who I stole it from.
